I see some refer your car as "the oilburner".........

But seriously you should consider to check the valve guides and stem-packings
on the cylinder head while it is off. Usually the oilconsumption is either
from the cylinderwalls to the combustion chamber or thru the valvestem due to
eccesive wear. You can check this by looking for any carbon-deposits on the
intakevalves in the intake area.
